Crosswind Landings
I think that a lot of pilots fear the crosswind component of landing an airplane, but once you feel confident like this course instills and you are confident in what you need to do, the fear resolved, and the challenge is no longer a challenge.

Xwinds Torque yaw in rotation?
I liked the video. I watched this because I was wondering if there was any information about torque yawing when rotating. I always find left crosswinds are easier because the yaw from rotating helps straighten the nose to be aligned with the centerline. In a right crosswind I would try to rotate slower so to not have much yawing in the rotation. This was for C182 which I used for my commercial training.

crosswinds made easy
I enjoyed the course. It was well done and easy to understand. I appreciate the use of actual flying in and out of the cockpit to show what was going on in the crosswind and when to know if there is too much crosswind to land on that particular runway.
